Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon

Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon

The Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon (SCDM) has become the Bank’s signature regional sponsorship and remains the single biggest event in terms of participant numbers in the region. Starting with 600 runners in 1990, the race has expanded to be acclaimed as the best one in Asia with over 25,000 runners, by the International Association of Athletics Federation. The SCDM has been awarded the Gold Label from the IAAF twice in a row (in 2012 and 2013). In 2016 we were delighted and honoured to see the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon was awarded the five-star rating by the Dubai Sports Council – one of just four sporting events in the UAE to achieve this rating. This was a testimony to our continuous efforts in promoting healthy living among our staff and the community at large in the UAE.

On a global scale, Standard Chartered sponsors nine marathons in some of the most exciting cities across our footprint in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. These events – in particular in Dubai – attract thousands of ordinary people to see the good of long distance running as they chase personal best times and course records, but just as important to us are our ‘everyday runners’ who look to ‘run for a reason’.
